Hello Fellow Compatriot,
2022 was an amazing year for the OrderPaper brand. On both the civic advocacy and media flanks, the team worked relentlessly to surprise ourselves and consolidate our position of acclaim as Nigeria’s premier legislative interface and public policy think-tank of repute.
Of course, while we recorded some milestones during the year, there were also a few challenges and unmet targets. We regarded those challenges as stepping stones that would spur the team to more successes in the coming year.
Cheers to a great year and here’s a toast to our 22 Moments and Milestones of Celebrations in 2022.
In 2022 OrderPaper achieved notable milestones in resource mobilization, especially in securing grants
In the course of the year OrderPaper has produced three exclusive, insightful and incisive Knowledge Products to demonstrate OrderPaper’s thought leadership in Legislative Accountability, Public Finance Management (PFM) and Transparency, Accountability and Good Governance (TAGG) in the extractive sector. These include:
Similarly, the Public presentation of first-ever National Assembly Annual Report (Independent Performance Appraisals of the Legislature) at the National Assembly.The Annual Report impacted 469 legislators, 2,988 Bills (1,979 HoR and 1,009 Senate), 36 States and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), as well as the Executive arm of Government at the Federal Level.
Successful tracking of 2021 Zonal Inspection Projects (ZIP) in the South West and South East geo-political zones of Nigeria. This is in line with the organisation’s mandate to keep citizens in the loop on how well or not their representatives carry out their legislative functions. Hence the Zonal Intervention Projects were tracked across Imo, Anambra, Abia, Enugu, Ebonyi, Osun, Ondo, Lagos, Oyo, Ogun and Ekiti Federal Constituencies.
The 2022 season was filled all year round with high impact activities and events.
Successful nomination of 55 members of the National Assembly for possible induction into the first-ever Most Valuable Parliamentarians (MVPs) Hall of Fame. The nominees were unveiled at a high-profile event held at the Transcorp Hilton Hotel Abuja.
In building collaboration across board to enable project productivity and sustainability, OrderPaper did not rest on its oars as it fostered a series of advocacy and bilateral meetings. These include:
The importance of social media in the age of digital reportage cannot be overemphasised. Using this all important tool for engagement OrderPaper was able to engage thousand on;
As a brand that is always seeking to grow the consciousness of citizens on parliamentary education and engagement, this often requires the need to partner with key stakeholders. Hence, in 2022 OrderPaper expanded its partnerships and collaborations by:
The media coverage for 2022 is one the organisation is proud and thankful for. It helped to get our brand message and contents across to a wider audience and helped establish our business as credible and our activities as niche carving. Using a powerful tool such as media coverage, we had:
• Over 60 media exposures and reportage in mainstream national print, radio, television and online media
• Designed and implemented 32 Radio programmes with over 960 minutes of public awareness and citizen engagements (on extractive sector transparency and accountability and voter education on the 2023 elections) featuring 26 Guests/Subject Matter Experts and 35 callers reaching 13.5million listeners and over 30,000 others on Facebook livestream
Fired up by the milestones of 2022, we look to 2023 with much anticipation and zest. Watch out for a consolidation of the above achievements and more ground-breaking innovations in civic advocacy and media activism. Here’s a few teasers in the loop: Improved and regular LIFE (Legislative Intelligence Forecast Entry) Services (weekly and quarterly); Legislative Masterclasses; Legislative Town Halls; MVPs Hall of Fame; among others we’d allow to cool off in the bag for now.
